At Least That’s What You Said

WilcoThe Toronto Sun speaks with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy about the band's not-so-weird sounding upcoming new album[via Largehearted Boy]. Halifax's The Coast similarly talks to Wilco bassist John Stirrat. We can expect to hear at least a few new songs when Wilco rolls into Massey Hall tonight.

Looking ahead to Saturday night, I'm looking forward to seeing Konono No. 1 at Harbourfront Centre(CIBC Stage) as part of the Beats, Breaks and Culture festival. The Montreal Mirror and Eye Weekly both spoke with Crammed Discs founder Victor Kenis whose label has released music from Konono No. 1. For a taste of Konono No. 1's music check out this promotional video.

According to info at The Heavy Blinkers website, their new double-album "Health" is set for release late-autumn. Also, the Blinkers' Jason and David are currently producing Halifax's Jenn Grant's first full-length album at the CBC in Halifax.

The boys who refuse to grow up, Sloan have some summer shows scheduled and will be in this neck of the woods for a show in Toronto on August 12 at Centre Island as part of Wakefest. The guys also have a show in Buffalo, NY at Buffalo Place on August 24th.

The Deadly Snakes return to Horseshoe Tavern for a show on August 25th.

Listen to/watch the session Belle and Sebastian did for Morning Becomes Eclectic yesterday morning[via Live Net Music].

Finally, here's some Neko Case live show torrents including, Neko @ WFMU Studios in September 2002 and Neko @ Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2003. Can't get enough Neko.

Many things happening this weekend including The Diableros/Magneta Lane show tonight in Mississauga as part of The Beating Heart festival, Wilco tonight at Massey Hall(which my friends and I are going to), Beats, Breaks and Culture festival at Harbourfront from tonight to Sunday, Celebrate Toronto Festival along Yonge St. also from tonight to Sunday, and Afrofest at Queens Park on Saturday and Sunday. Have a great weekend!
